1. A term which means "northmen", which is what the raiders from Scandinavia were called by British, French, etc. At one time the Vikngs controlled much of the British Isles and western and northern France.

At one time in its history the French were so weak that they were bullied into making a Viking the Duke Of Normandy and letting the Vikings raid and pillage several Eastern French cities unimpeded. The honest Vikings kept to their word and decided not to sack Paris.

The Vikings were also fine shipwrights that build long oar powered boats called "longboats". These ships were long and thin, and despite their appearence they were very seaworthy. Despite popular belief, the Vikings never used longboats for combat, but as a transport.

Under Erik the Red they were the first finders of North America, but they didn't document it and therfore didn't get the credit. It is believed that the Vikings explored as far into North America as Newfoundland(east of Quebec, near Newbrunswick and Prince Eduard Island).

During the Middle Ages (A.D. 500-1500), fierce warriors called Vikings lived on the Scandinavian Peninsula of northern Europe. The Vikings, a tall people known for their blond hair and blue eyes, were skilled craftsmen and daring seamen. They raided many European nations and explored far out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Around the year A.D. 1000, the Viking Leif Ericson discovered the North American continent. It is believed that the Vikings might have started several little villages at the tip of Newfoundland, an island off Canada's Atlantic coast. Although they did not tell anyone about their discovery, the Vikings were nevertheless probably the second people to discover America.

An extremely large northern european fighting machine, wielding Axe or Sword and at least twice the size of people from other cultures of that era! Vikings were just as much explorers as they were warriors and in fact it was they who discovered America first!

'Northmen' belived to get into Valhalla they must die in glorious battle and would gladly go to war to die!

In Roman times most of the succesful Gladiators were probably from viking and northern bloodlines. !

1. Badass and brutal but honest warriors of the early middle ages, originating mainly from Norway, Sweden and Iceland but also partly from Denmark.
Contrary to popular belief, not a single Viking helmet had horns on it. Also contrary to popular belief, the word "Viking" actually refers to the long and perilous sea travels Vikings would take to conquer new land.

2. An (often stupid) act of courage, bravery or machoness.
1. The Vikings were brutal, dude. Before they burned villages and killed babies, they'd eat a bunch of Fly Agarics to make them fearless.

2. The lake had just thawed up, so we all took the Viking and jumped in without checking the temperature. Matt and John got hypothermia.

New slang/street term for: Vicodin.

Usually used by people looking to trade sex for pills.

Also commonly used with the term Molly, as in the pure form of MDMA, or better known as Ecstasy.
A classic example came from a Craigslist post:

Looking for my friend Molly and her Viking friends. We like to hang out in the afternoon, about 40 mins before 5 o'clock. Since I like to party so much I'd like to know who else can come along. Respond and we can go from there.
